Is Sugar the New Fat

Psychologist and author, Nigel Latta, looks into the question of whether too much sugar can be dangerous for you. Some believe sugar is the big contributor to a worldwide explosion in obesity, diabetes, and something called ‘metabolic syndrome’. Nigel embarks on a journey to discover if sugar could be the real culprit in this growing crisis. After an initial blood test, his confidence in what he’d previously considered a healthy lifestyle is snatched away, and what was at first a stunt for TV suddenly becomes a very personal journey trying to find out what we really should be eating. Nigel takes on world leading scientists and the food industry, and radically changes his diet in an attempt to both understand the truth about sugar.
